Children in the Khumbu

Children in the Khumbu

Do you know what kind of rock makes up Mt. Everest, when was the first north side summit or how much rope is used to set the fixed rope on the south side each season? Well, Everest is full of interesting history, details and trivia.

As part of my Everest for KiDs slide show, have added a page with a few facts that kids, and adults, may find interesting. If you know others I should add send me an email.

If you have never visited Everest for KiDs, it is a series of 25 short pages designed for parents to read along with their kids. I designed it with help from educators and other parents for kids under 10 years-old. I hope there are some life lessons in the story that appeal to everyone.

I am quite pleased that it is used regularly throughout the school year by schools all over the world. It is free and always available.

Climb On!
